Software Needed To Transfer Files


Hi,

I'm looking for a program or a solution. I'm trying to transfer approx. 8 gb of files from a Windows XP PC to my Red Hat 9 PC, I have Network Cards in each and Cables for em. But nethier of my Network Cards are being recongized in my Red Hat 9 PC (A Swann Ethernet PCI Card or the Nvidia NForce Networking Card (Onboard)). I was wondering if anyone has had these cards and/or can help me in some other way set up something to get my files across?

Thanks

EG

Nvidia has drivers here or you can use the "forcedeth" module available in recent (2.6.3+) kernels.

the abovementioned nforce drivers above worked fine
for my redhat 9 machine.
one note: you said you had network cards and cables,
but didnt mention whether you were using a hub, switch, or
router...
you cant just run a cat5 cable between network cards on
two machines, you either need to use a switch, or use
a crossover cable

Hi,

Sorry, I have no router, switch or hub. I just have Switch Cables and Cross-Overs.. I'll try the NForce drivers when I laterz and see if that helps, After I get my network card detected on RedHat 9, What I use to get the files across?

Thanks

Don't know if you want to do it this way or not. But, you could take the harddrive from the XP machine and put it in your Red Hat 9.0 machine as a slave. Boot into Red Hat, mount your XP drive and copy all the data you want over. I use Linux a lot to transfer data from one harddrive to another. I usually boot with Knoppix, mount my harddrives and do my copying.

Just an idea. If you can't get your network cards working.

You can use samba to make the linux box show up in the windoze box network neighborhood and then copy the files... or setup samba and use a program like linneighborhood to make the windoze box show up on your linux box..

or setup an ftp server on one of the boxes and then use your favorite ftp program from the other box to transfer the files...

Just for the experience, try both of the above methods before you move the hard drive... (*which for this amount of data, I would probably do.
and since you can get the network cards installed, you can surely handle... !!*)

Or... copy the files using floppy disks (*ha?*) or cds (*maybe...*) or DVDs...

Thanks for those ideas Gruntwerk, Can you provide any instructions on setting up my Samba Server or an FTP to work with XP?

THanks

Hi,

Just another update, I''m able to connect to my Windows XP machine and get files off it trhough Redhat 9 Terminal but I can't get the Windows to Redhat 9 working.. I go to Mshome, Click my User there (which is Redhat 9) and it gives an error "//Localhost is not accessable", Anyhelp there? Also is there a command to copy while directories from Windows to Redhat 9 instead of having to zip then go "get"?

Thanks

Not sure if you got it to work yet.
I was in the same position. I was able to get the following to work.
Physical connection is through an Actiontec modem with two ethernet ports (instead of RS232).
On XP machine I set the IP of the linux box to a trusted network.
On Linux Box. I'm running Mandrake 10.0. I used GNOMBA.
Set the pref's to IP scan method for a range that includes the XP.
Credentials set as guest.
Automount on doubleclick.
Konqueror was able to see it in /temp and I was able to copy to a folder on Linux.
